Linking my VPS to a Virtual Desktop. Authentication Error
So I’m really struggling with linking my virtual private server to a virtual desktop. I want to add my custom bot to the virtual desktop to work on it in there.
What I’ve done so far:
droplet made through DigitalOcean with a Ubuntu 16.04 setup
created public and private keys through PuTTyGen
went through initial server setup: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-16-04#option-2-manually-install-the-key
connected my public key to my droplet. Cut key from puttygen and pasted into authorized_keys
Installed TightVNC and followed the configuration instructions: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-vnc-on-ubuntu-16-04
Regardless, when I try to login from my windows terminal with the user I created that has full admin/sudo access (even tried making my windows terminal linux-friendly through developer mode), I STILL get this error:
–Putty error: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey) –
I followed multiple fixes from various forums, but still no luck. So frustrating....Please help?
